Monklets are predefined code snippets that allow you to bring in other module content (sermons, events, etc.) into your pages. There are a few monklets that have been created that are placed in the content area of your sidebar sections.
You can use a monklet inside a section by placing your cursor in the content area, selecting Insert > Insert Monklet > "Desired Monklet".
Some monklets allow inline parameters to be passed to define items from a specific group, category, etc.http://help.monkcms.com/article/using-monklets/ and https://help.ekklesia360.com/article/using-inline-parameters/ provides details on using these parameters.
*NOTE - Monklets that are defined with "Sidebar Monklet" in the title can only be inserted into the content area of a sidebar section.
